Is there no end to it?

This crap weather - I am seriously worried we are going to drown on land!!!

The rain is torrential and has been for the last 6 weeks - only 1 day without. It is still 60mph and guess what - more gales and torrential rain tomorrow. My battery can't last much longer pumping all the water out - looks like a full cover is a must!!!

If you could catch all the rain that falls on Britain it would be enough to supply the whole world - 6 billion people - seriously!!!

No thanks - weather appeals - being landlocked would kill me - must get a sight and smell of the sea at least 3 times a week or I will die - must be the fishblood in me....

At least the border of arizona is only about 50 miles from the sea I suppose - imagine there are many people who are born and die without ever seeing the sea !!!

Not looking at getting any better, I reckon this wind is in for the week and then some. This is Friday's pressure chart, looks like another complete blow out for the weekend

Why not design a mini hydroelectric power plant to catch the rain and generate electricity to pump it out of your boat?

Try 88mph and 27ft waves which is what we have now - with the usual torrential rain thrown in for good measure. Just realised all this crap comes straight across from the good old USA - want it back???
